How to hide "window buttons" tooltips?

Hi,

How can I hide "window buttons" tooltips?

I mean, when you have one or more minimized windows, and you put the mouse over one of those buttons, it shows a black ballon with information about that window. I want to disable that.

Per this thread:

Is it possible to turn off popups when mouse pointer is over task list buttons?

I don't think you can disable tooltips per widget. You can make all tooltips invisible with:

tooltip { opacity: 0 }

Thank you for your post, but it is possible to disable tooltips per each launcher in the panel; so, how come is not possible to disable tooltips for window buttons?..
I think there must be a way. I just don't know how.

Are you using XFCE4.14?
alcornoqui appears correct in his post, if so.

EDIT: I can't resist the side comment: 4.14 is more GTK3 heavy and GTK3 is pretty much as controlling and user-unfriendly as Microsnot is.
Gnome Development no longer supports the idea of User Control.

Re: How to hide "window buttons" tooltips?

For launchers for applications you can disable tooltips individually. Go to Settings - Panel and select the appropriate panel. Select the application launcher and click the edit button on the right side. That will open the launcher settings. Go to the advanced tab and there is an option to disable tooltips.

Note: I haven't tried this I just noticed it was there when looking for something else.

Yes, the Windows Buttons launcher, however, lacks that ability. Strangely, mine are disabled, though.
The two things I have going on are

 gtk-enable tooltips=0

and Settings> Desktop> icons> "Show icon tooltips"- unchecked.

 gtk-enable-tooltips=0

(don't forget the second dash.) This will work for older versions of Xfce but not 4.14. You need the GTK3 solution in the Arch thread.

As I stated above that only works for application launchers. It doesn't work for Window buttons, Action buttons etc. or any panel plugin

Re: How to hide "window buttons" tooltips?

Thank you.

This worked for me in XFCE 4.14, in file /home/user1/.config/gtk-3.0.css, added this to the bottom of the file:

tooltip {
    opacity: 0;
}

If you don't have the file, create it and paste it inside.
Maybe it's necessary to log out and log in, I don't remember.
But it worked.

The only problem is that this disables all notifications, not only the ones in "Windows Buttons" applet in the panels.
However, I don't like notifications, so it's no big deal.

But it would be good to have the choice to disable for this applet "Windows Buttons", as we can do it already for each individual launcher and some applets.

I think the reason this can not be done in the "Windows Buttons" applet is because the developers have not set this yet in the code of this applet.

So, it can only work if we go up one level and disable at GTK level. But I'm just guessing here.
